TREASURIES-Yields lowest since November after North Korea fires missile

NEW YORK, Aug 29 (Reuters) - Benchmark 10-year Treasury yields fell to their lowest since last November on Tuesday on safety buying after North Korea fired a ballistic missile over Japan’s northern Hokkaido island into the sea.

The action prompted warnings to residents to take cover and drew a sharp reaction from Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

Ten-year Treasury yields dropped as low as 2.086 percent, the lowest since Nov. 10, two days after Donald Trump won the U.S. presidential election, before rising back to 2.10 percent. (Editing by Jeffrey Benkoe) )
